The Massachusetts Federation
of Building Officials is an umbrella organization representing the city
and town Building Commissioners and Local Inspectors, commonly known as
"building inspectors" throughout the Commonwealth. All are members
of one or more of the three regional professional associations - the

worship, visit and recreate are safe for all.
